the ban ki-moon example was interesting. thank you men, the secretary- general to the u.n., very -- bany to the u.s. -- a ki-moon, secretary-general to the u.n., very frilly to the u.s., he was coming april to the white house for a routine meeting with president obama. nsa collected his talking points before the meeting. now the white house won't say whether president obama was given and read this talking point in advance of the meeting, but if you think about it, it is kind of hard to imagine those talking points would contain anything terribly shocking. of course, there is the political cost of being caught essentially eavesdropping on the secretary-general of the u.n. that cost has been paid. i think as long as they could remain secret about all of this stuff, nsa's instinct was to collect everything and whoever in the government wants to read it, fine, if not, fine. but now i think the administration is a very difficult decision to make about balancing the political cost of spying, particularly on allies, on friendly countries, frilly -- friendlynst people, against what they might gl

combined. the pace of escalation is staggering. according to a recent u.n. report, in the two years of conflict, syria has lost 35 years of human development progress. with the 2 million refugees, this is a national crisis that has become a regional crisis about putting serious strains on neighboring countries. there is a toll on the syrian people, the kids who have not gone to school for two years, women who've endured rape and abuse, and the 5 million displaced syrians who do not have a place to live or enough to eat. at the crisis has escalated, we have accelerated a response, and our assistance is now reaching about 4.2 million people inside syria, and we are helping to support 2 million refugees. the same stubborn challenges that i talked about seven months ago, access, security, and resources, continued to prevent us and others from reaching everybody who needs help to get it and the need continues to escalate. in early october, field by the momentum of the resolution to eliminate the chemical weapons, un security council unanimously passed a presidential statement on humanita
joins us from the u.n. help me sort through the issues. the chemical weapons inspectors finished the first phase of the job. what comes next? >> well, they did this ahead of schedule, they had a deadline for 1 november to stop all the production facilities of chemical weapons, and make it impossible for syria to produce any more chemical weapons. that has been done. i think the - those involved, the u.n. and the organisation for the prohibition of chemical weapons believe it really has been done, and they are happy. in many ways that is the easy part, tony. the more difficult part is all of those chemical weapons that they have. that is 1,000 metric tonnes of chemical weapons - war heads, munitio munitions, sarin, mustard gas - they have to find a way of getting the munitions and probably taking them out of syria and destroying them. the problem at the moment is they don't have a country that wants to do that job, that wants to host the deconstruction, destruction of the chemical weapons. >> so, james, look, we have a situation here - there was a lot of testimony on krill about s
at the white house today. the meeting came on the heels of a u.n. report that said that nearly a thousand iraqis died during violence in october. let's go to mike viqueira at the white house, mike, tell us about that meeting today. what was the prime minister asking for? >> reporter: well, he's asking for weapons. he's asking for american weapons systems to fight the violence that he and the white house lay squarely at the feet of taliban. there are some who say no,al maliki is response as well involving the sunniy shiite and kurd violence. more than 7,000 iraqi versus died in violence over the course of this year alone, that's an estimated figure. al maliki asked for weapons systems to help. >> throughout this discussion the main theme was tha theme wai communicated to the prime minister that anything that we can do to help bring about that more hopeful future for iraq is something that we want to work on. welcome, mr. prime minister, thank you so much for coming. >> the white house saying again today which should be clear to everyone there is going to be no more american troops on the g
of a seat on the u.n. security council. but what everyone thinks of the obama administration's handling of the region, the last measure of american foreign policy should be how it is received by the house. if there were a price for most irresponsible foreign policy, it would be surely be awarded to saudi arabia. it is the nation most responsible for the rise of islamic radicalism and militancy across the world. over the past four decades, the kingdoms immense oil wealth has been used to underwrite the export of an extreme intolerant and violent version of islam. go anywhere in the world from germany to indonesia and you will find islamic centers flush with saudi money spouting intolerance and hate. a top treasury official said -- >> if i could snap my fingers and cut off funding from one country, it would be saudi arabia. >> hillary clinton confirmed that saudi arabia remained a critical financial base for terrorism. she also said that there was only limited action to stop flow of funds from taliban and other such terrorists groups. saudi arabia was one of three countries in the world t
keeping the u.s.a. safe. >> that might be the way that the n.s.a. has skirted around these issues, because they are in lock step with g.c.h.q. they worked well in hand, the two of them. there are an awful lot of monitoring stations here in the u.k., one run by the n.s.a. itself up in yorkshire. it's said to be the largest facility in minwith hill, the largest in europe. the g.c.h.q. and n.s.a. work hand-in-glove together and have a special relationship and share intelligence, so maybe it's not the n.s.a. monitoring american citizens, maybe it's the g.c.h.q. and they can do it under british law, so a little bit of a roundabout way of doing things, phil. >> again, phil ittner joining us from london on these exclusive documents obtained by aljazeera. >> edward snowden has a new job, his lawyer said he has found a tech support job. he has been living in the former soviet republic since august. the lawyer didn't name the company. he is set to start tomorrow. >> if you're getting one of these letters, just shop around in the new marketplace. you're going to get a better deal. >> president obama

threatened to veto any resolution authorizing force at the u.n. security council, military action seemed any further off. >> the security council has to be brought in. >> reporter: stepping back a bit. obama decided to ask congress to approve the use of military force against syria. but that plan changed when, in september, u.s. secretary of state john kerry made an off the cuff comment saying if syria gave up its chemical weapons then military action could be avoided. something the russians jumped at and that led to a plan to eliminate syria's chemical weapons. based on that agreement, the global chemical weapons watchdog set deadlines for syria's disarmer. and sent weapons inspectors in. syria has now met two deadlines in that process. last week the syrian government submitted a plan outlining how it will destroy its chemical weapons reserves. on thursday, a day before the deadline, it's a announced that syria has functionally destroyed the equipment it needs to create new chemical weapons. the next deadline is the middle of this month with syria's formal plan will need to be approved by t
on destroying and dismantling the chemical weapons infrastructure supplied. today the u.n. confirms it has destroyed equipment syria used to make chemical weapons with. so far inspectors have visited 21 chemical sites identified by syrian authorities within the timeframe specified. the two remaining sites are in contested areas where the challenge of getting there is more difficult, but i hope ultimately can be succeeded at as well. let me conclude by saying i want to make clear my views at the outset, the united states cannot and should not be the key that resolves every dispute in this egion, but we have a very real strategic stake in this region to make sure that syria does not become a failed state. we need to increase our humanitarian assistance and insist on humanitarian access as well as increase our support communities hosting syrian refugees in lebanon and jordan and to getting others in the international community to live up to their responsibilities in this regard. calling on donor nations to join us in this time of greatest need, because syria is a global problem. we need an an

referred to the use of chemical weapons in syria as a redline. he used obama's own words. the u.n. secretary general, jeff feldman, the highest ranking american at the united nations in the former assistant secretary for eastern affair and ambassador to lebanon was in iran in august talking to them prior to the u.s.-russia deal as things were being worked out. these things were being discussed. i interviewed foreign minister when he was in new york, and basically the headline was we have a history of use of chemical weapons. we have destroyed chemical weapons. we can help in the process. they sported the process all along. in fact a deputy foreign minister was in moscow when the agreement was announced. an interesting coincidence. them willing to help was in the process. while we're on the subject of syria. one of our writers, jeffrey aaronsohn said something fascinating about syria in a recent article. he said syria is the arena or where the basic prerequisite for progress on the u.s.-iran agenda recognizing core interests and facing mechanisms to safe guard them are being forged
